Symbolism is a notable feature in Catching Fire. Through symbolism , Suzanne Collins manages to paint Katniss as the ultimate embodiment of rebellion through transferring her into a mockingjay . " A mockingjay is a creature the Capitol never intended to exist"(92), as it is a result of the Capitol's usage of the japperjays which were sent to spy on the rebels. However, the japperjays failed in their mission so the Capitol left them to die ,but they managed to survive through mating to female mockingbirds . This proves that the existence of the mockingjays is an act of rebellion in itself , an act of defiance excuted by the Capitol's own invention , long before Katniss has been born. .
One of the characteristics of the dystopian society is that; the people have horrible fear of the outside world and that is exactly what happens with the people in Panem as Katniss says “[f]ear shoots through me, but I have enough sense to keep still” (Collins 185) expresses her fear in that new world, using stream of consciousness. Obviously, Katniss and Peeta face a lot of difficulties and Tests in the games. Katniss describes her state “I’m wounded and trapped. Darkness has given me a brief reprieve” (Collins 186). They are really in hell facing their Enemy, the Gamekeepers, as they are constantly trying to throw the tributes off during the games.
“The Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins is a suspenseful and frightening story about a 16 year old girl, Katniss everdeen who is born into a small village called District 12. The capitol, which controls the districts hosts an annual Hunger Games each and every year. Two tributes, a boy and a girl from each district are chosen between the ages of 12-18 to compete against 22 other tributes, but only one can win. Katniss is not chosen, but her younger sister Prim is chosen at only 12 years old. Katniss volunteers in Prim 's place and is now in the hunger games.
Dystopian Societies A dystopian society by definition is the exact opposite of a utopia. This means that nothing is perfect, or peaceful. Everything is chaos and nothing works out right. This could be because of a rebellion, because a group has too much power, or because the main goal of a society did not work out as planned.
Imagine your world is divided by the color of your blood. Red and Silver. Imagine your best friend is taken away to an arena of death because their name was pulled from a bowl of others names that just narrowly escaped death. Wouldn’t you want change? In King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard, the world is divided by blood type.
Do you believe that being responsible is essential to daily life? In The Hunger Games do you think that the tributes that have won had to survive by responsibility? In the novel, the main characters, “Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark” are entered into the Hunger Games. The Hunger Games is a reality TV show that forces teenagers ages twelve to eighteen to fight for their lives against one another. In The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins the overarching theme is being responsible is vital to survive in daily life, Katniss demonstrates this by caring for her family, being responsible for Peeta and his actions and being responsible for herself and her own actions.
Would you rather die for a sacrifice, or fight to the death to instill fear? “The Lottery” is a poem about a town who annually gives sacrifice to make sure that their crops grow. “The Hunger Games” is a movie about a girl named Katniss who has to join her “friend” and 22 other kids to fight to the death to please the ruler of Panem, President Snow, and to help him instill fear in the citizens. Tradition and violence as entertainment are two themes “The Lottery” and “The Hunger Games” have in common while also having contrasting ideas and events of their own. Both stories are based off of their own traditions.
Perseverance can lead you out of a quagmire when matched with the right character. This is shown in The Hunger Games. Katniss and Peeta exhibit their grit throughout the plot. The Hunger Games takes place in the country of Panem, a dystopian society that is located in North America. The Hunger Games is all about the survival of the fittest.
“From the Treaty of the Treason: In penance for their uprising, each district shall offer up a male and female between the ages of 12 and 18 at a public ‘Reaping.’ These Tributes shall be delivered to the custody of The Capitol. And then transferred to a public arena where they will Fight to the Death, until a lone victor remains. Hence forth and forevermore this pageant shall be known as The Hunger Games.” These are the first lines to the 2013 Kids’ Choice Award for Favorite Movie.
